The trail is one of the most beautiful sections of the Great Smoky National Park near Townsend and Tremont.  The trail follows the rushing Middle Prong of the Little River, and features overlooks of waterfalls, cascades and rapids cut through a narrow gorge.  This hike follows a wide old logging railroad bed up a gentle slope.  Since the hike is between 2000 and 3000 feet elevation, the temperature will be lower than in Tellico Village.
